Observation: abortion is on the decline. How many of these out-of-wedlock births would have been abortions back in 1990? I would rather have the out-of-wedlock birth than the abortion.
Observation: cohabitation is not permissible. Does a civil marriage (court house) make it any better? We used to have common law marriage- a couple that cohabitates for a time are deemed by society to be married.
Please allow me to focus on a reality of life in today’s age: there is a thing called “fertilization control.” You would think that the people would use it.
